Celtic Connections Conference 2016

The second Celtic Connections Conference will take place in Minneapolis, Minnesota in a little over five weeks time. Previously held in 2014 in Massachusetts, the conference is co-hosted by two of the biggest Irish genealogy societies in the United States - The Irish Genealogical Society International (IGSI)  and The Irish Ancestral Research Association (TIARA).

Spread across two days, 5 - 6 August, the conference will see some of the most well known names in Irish and Scottish genealogy give talks; John Grenham, Brian Donovan, Dr. Bruce Durie and William Roulston, to name just a few. The theme of the conference is 'Celtic Roots Across America' and there will be more than 20 lectures and presentation across the two days.

The event is being held in the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in the St. Louis Park area to the west of downtown (see map below). Registration for the conference closes this Friday (1 July) Thursday 14 July.

You can find out all the necessary information about the conference on the official website.
